Dark Elegance and Timeless Whites

In the ever-evolving world of home design, the details like the colour of your fence can make a significant impact on your property’s aesthetics.

As we step into 2023, it’s fascinating to see how certain fence colours have gained immense popularity. This year, we’re witnessing two distinct trends emerge in fence colour choices: the modern allure of dark shades and the Mediterranean charm of classic whites.

Let’s delve into the most popular fence colours of 2023.

We’re witnessing two distinct trends emerge in fence colour choices

The Dark Hues: Monument, Ironstone and Basalt

Dark-coloured fences have been making waves since we started out in 2017, bringing a sense of sophistication and modernity to homes. 2023 is not an exception.

Monument, Ironstone, and Basalt are the front-runners in this category, offering homeowners an array of options to achieve a sleek, contemporary look for their properties.

Monument’s deep and empowering charcoal, Ironstone’s mid grey with a bluish undertone, and Basalt’s deep and robust grey, create a dramatic contrast against greenery, making your outdoor space feel cosy and inviting.

Monument: A Confident Choice

Monument, a striking charcoal hue, has gained immense popularity for its bold and contemporary appeal. It pairs exceptionally well with modern architecture and landscaping, creating a stunning visual contrast.

Whether you have a sleek, minimalist home or a more eclectic style, Monument can be the perfect backdrop for your outdoor space.

Surfmist fence colour

Timeless Mediterranean Whites: Surfmist and Dover White.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have the ever-popular white fences that continue to stand the test of time.

Surfmist and Dover White are the quintessential choices for those seeking a classic, clean, and timeless appearance. These shades exude elegance and offer a fresh, airy feel to your outdoor area. White fences are versatile and can complement various architectural styles, from traditional to contemporary.

Surfmist: Coastal Elegance

Surfmist, a soft, neutral white with a hint of grey, brings a coastal elegance to any property. It’s a versatile choice that works well with beach-inspired aesthetics or can be a backdrop for colourful gardens and landscaping. Surfmist is not just a colour; it’s a statement of tranquillity and timelessness.

Choosing Your Fence Colour

When deciding on the perfect fence colour, consider your home’s architecture, the surrounding landscape, and your personal style.

Dark shades create a bold and modern look, while whites offer timeless sophistication.
